SnowStorm Denis

This is what the end of our driveway looked like yesterday before dad got the snowblower out. We got 2 feet of snow!  It's a 4 foot jump to get down to the street.
Can you see that the snow is up to my belly?!

The wind whipped and blew all night on Wednesday night and there were drifts everywhere. It's pretty but 2 feet on top of 3 feet makes 5 feet and mom and dad are having a hard time finding spots to put all of this white stuff!
Can you see the pile on top of our front porch roof?  We are crossing our paws that it doesn't collapse!
The snowy handle on the barn door is normally 4 foot off the ground~
I finally got to come out to pee and poo!  When mom brought us out at 4AM we had to PUSH our way out of the back door. We were literally snowed in!  I didn't get too far off the back porch  before I toppled over in the snow. It was just too deep for my liking, being the senior girlie that I am!
Thanks for the walkie trench, dad.  It makes it much easier for me~

That's our wisteria under that huge pile of snow~
Does anybody need or want any snow?
Let us know - we have LOTS of it to share!
So until next time..................

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Aw, Dad is so nice to make the walkie trench for you!

I would love some snow! Send some over to Singapore, please???

It might be a pain, but it IS beautiful. We'd be completely buried in all that snow. We'd definitely need a trench or tunnel.

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

We think it is cool that you had some black swans.

Martha and Bailey said...

Oh my goodness, that is certainly some snow you have there - very much like ours a couple of weeks ago.
We were very worried that our conservatory roof would collapse under the weight so paws crossed for your porch.
Having said that it really is beautiful!!!!
You can keep it though - after six weeks the novelty does wear off.

Hey M&M,
Well look at the bright side, you'll be able to have a 4th of July snowman building contest. It took our dad 4 hours to get home from work Wednesday night and we were snow/iced in yesterday morning. Sometimes you can have too much of a good thing. OBTW, this is all the fault of the dogs at Golden Pines.

Mango said...

Watch out for collecting snowballs in your furs. I know how annoying that can be for you wiry haired doggies.

This snow is absurd. Momma keeps looking out the window and shaking her head because she cannot believe it.

Slobbers,
Mango

BJ Roan said...

Oh my! I complain, but I don't have that much snow to complain about. It's supposed to get up to 37 tomorrow, so maybe some will melt away. I hope your porch doesn't collapse. Hubby used to live near Syracuse, New York. His kitchen roof caved in the last winter he lived there. I think that's why it was the last winter he lived there.

Ruby and Penny said...

OMD, we thought we had lots of snow. You win.
Mom had to hire someone to take the snow off of our roof this week.
It does look beautiful.
Love Ruby & Penny

Penny and Patches said...

If we had that much snow, in the Atlanta area, we would be shut down until summer! It IS very pretty, but it has reminded our mom of the main reason she won't move back to Ohio, where her whole family lives!

That was very nice of your dad to make a path for you!

Aire-hugs,
Penny & Patches

Priscilla said...

Is there a snow competition? It seems everybody is getting more snow than each other over the days!
Hope it's not too cold for you all though!

Gus said...

That is bootiful! But a true Bitch. I'll bet me and Teka would both be lost pretty quickly.

kisses

Niamh said...

We would love some of your snow Maggie. It must be so hard to walk in it when it is that deep. If you sent some to us though it would probably melt fast because it is going to be 56 degrees here tomorrow. Stay warm.

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose

Reilly / Bree said...

That really is a lot of snow but my dogness, is sure does look pretty. I hope your roofs will be okay, we saw on the news last night that in some places they were collapsing under the weight. And you be careful Miss Maggie, we don't want you slipping and hurting yourself.

Fred said...

Yes--send some snow my way!!!

Tank said...

Oh my gosh! I would be buried till spring:(

animal lover, quilt lover said...

You can keep your snow. We like to look at the pretty pictures but we don't want any snow here!!! We have a beautiful day here today. It is suppose to get up to 60 degrees!!!!!
The daffodils will be coming up if it stays so nice and warm!! We are really looking forward to Spring!!

Sam said...

Wow that's a lot of snow. I'm not sure that I could get through that without a trench being dug for me. One good thing would be that my mom and dad could spot me because I have black fur.

The Rocky Creek Scotties said...

We're raising our paws - we'll take a foot or so of it!!

XOXO
Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Ruairi

Sue said...

Yes, yes, yes!!! We want some snow. It's in the 50s here and all we have is mud to play in. Please send us all your extra snow.

Sugar the Golden Retriever said...

Woof! Woof! Lots of SNOW!!! no snow here ... its just cloudy n cold. Be safe. Lots of Golden Woofs, sugar

♥I am Holly♥ said...

Whoa!! That's a lot of snow!!! Stay warm and safe!!! We didn't get any except cold winds again. We don't want anymore this year either. Last time I said that was in 1992 or 1993 in March when we got a couple feet of it which toppled a big tree on top of my car! It's pretty but not when you have a tree on your car! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

Bocci said...

Hi Maggie and Mitch,
Well, we'll have to pass on your kind and generous offer of the snow... but thanks for showing us those beautiful pictures! It's a lot of hard work digging out from such a storm-maybe your Mom and Dad will be able to relax and drink some hot chocolate today...

Hattie Airedale said...

Oh my word......how beautiful!
Loving your new picture at the top........

Thor said...

I want some snow, Maggie and Mitch!

William Tell said...

All I can say is it's a good thing that Airedales have long legs. Otherwise we would not have seen either of you in any of those pictures! Well, maybe the tops of your tipped ears, kinda like that shark in the movie. Da-Duh, Da-Duh, Da-Duh...

Happy Tails,
William Tell

Cooper and Lola said...

What a great dad you have doing all the snow blowing. WE haven;t gotten a lot of snow in a while...Hope you get some sunshine soon.

Benny and Lily said...

We can't believe all the snow every buddy has. Don't get lost in that stuff or you will look like Francesca

mayziegal said...

Oh my dogness! Oh my dogness! That is the most snow I have ever seen in my whole entire life! Gosh! That's KER-AZY! And yes, please. We need some snow here. Uh, but you don't have to send me ALL of it.

I can't believe you were able to make it to my Commentathon with all that snow. Did you take a sleigh? Well, I hope you know how very thankful I am that you came by to visit!

Wiggles & Wags,
mayzie

Remington said...

We are getting another shipment right now. I will make sure to take you off the list....looks like you have plenty! Enjoy!

Ina in Alaska said...

Lovely views but I can see that it is completely overwhelming! The East Coast has gotten way too much snow this season. I will hope that is the end of it for you and that it melts quickly. Your home and property are so pretty!!

I too dig paths for my dogs in snow. It makes for easier poopsicle pickup too.

Thankfully it is Friday so folks can have a chance to get all dug out over the weekend. Take it easy.... xoxo

Jan said...

Brrrrr. We keep all our snow up in the mountains and just visit it once in a while.

Maggie Mae said...

Woofs and Licks,
Maggie Mae

Persephone and Buster said...

hi m & m... the humomm is back with gracie.. and we have lots of snow too! you want some of ours to fill in any low spots? we got a path in the snow too.. it goes out and around and around and around... dizzy dizzy.. you look like you had fun in the snows.. the next storm may drop enough snow to cover the barn!!! we don't have any more places to put the snow... so the humans have made huge snow mountains... d

Tweedles -- that's me said...

You have shared your beautiful home with us through all the seasons, spring, summer, autumn, and winter,, but we have never seen snow like this!
I know its beautiful-- but seems like it would be a little overwhelming. We sometimes worry about our roof caving in.
I bet you do too.. Worry kinda takes the beauty away.
Be safe
love
tweedles

Wyatt said...

Sherry said...

Looks like it's time to hitch up and learn to pull a sled. I know a lady who does this with Airedales--about half a dozen of them!

Lorenza said...

Maggie and Mitch!
That is a lot of snow!
OMD! I hope it melts soon!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

the 4 Bs said...

does your dad have to dig some snow out from under you so you can go potty? that's a lot of snow. you can send some to us. we only have rain here and we're tired of it. our human is tired of mud. the snow looks so nice and clean. it's really pretty, but you're probably thinking that enough is enough!

Stardust said...

That's like a volume for the entire year, a lil too much. I'm so sorry for your cold feet and roofies. Let's hope that this is the final biggest.

Momo and Pinot said...

OMD, Maggie and Mitch! It's a beautiful white world!!!

Momo & Pinot xoxo

Samantha ~ Holly and Zac ~ said...

Oh my, that is a lot of snow. It looks beautiful, especially on your house. But we can see how annoying it would be having it that deep.
Holly & Zac love playing in it, but that would be too deep for them to do much in it.

We hope it melts away soon, we would say we would like some but the humans of the household would be quite happy not getting any. It sure looks beautiful though.

You guys be careful in it!

Happy Sunday. :)

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Holy Toledo! What terrific snow pics!! You can send us a truckload here in Phoenix. We miss the snow like crazy.
Smooches from pooches,
BabyRD & Hootie

ps-Are you biting Mitches tail in that last photo?? BOL.

parlance said...

That sure is a heap of snow! It must be hard for you to deal with. I've never thought about it before, seeing we don't get snow, but I wonder where it all goes? Does it soak into the ground, or what?

Genista Gold Milaika said...

OMD it is beautiful!Gorgeous pictures!

Stanislaw said...

SO JEALOUS of your snow! It's 70 degrees down here and I'm pretty sure that the sun is scaring the snow away. I'm a way bigger fan of show than these silly sunny days. Make sure you get in enough snow plays and snow feastings for me!

Sierra Rose said...

Oh yeah! Send the snow on over here :)
Beautiful, but can imagine it is quite a job to keep things plowed!! I'm a good snow trailblazer, just say the word, and I'll zoomie over!

Sweet hugs,
Sierra Rose

parlance said...

Thanks for the explanation about where the snow can go. When It's super hot here, I think snow sounds lovely, but now I'm thinking I'd rather not have any!

Inky and Molly said...

Your house and barn look beautiful all covered up in the snow. And of course, you fit right in!
Would love to have a mongrel around in that...

Bailey Be Good! said...

Boy, look at all that snow!! I wish we got snow so I could try it out!

Woofs & hugs,

~Bailey

Rudy said...

WOW! That is way too much snow. It sure does look mighty beautiful at your home though. Glad dad dug you a trench Maggie. Dad had to do that today for ol' Molly girl.
Don't get lost in all that snow and I'll keep my paws crossed that no roof collapse.

Love,
Rudy
